World of Warships ST – Italian Battleships – new branch – tier 4 tier 10

Home News WarGaming news World of Warships

Researchable Italian battleships will be added to the game in the upcoming supertest session.

The ships of the new branch are most effective in combat at medium range. The main features of the Italian battleships:

  • Like the Italian cruisers, instead of HE shells, the new ships are armed with SAP shells. They inflict high damage on weakly and moderately protected targets and ship parts, but do not cause fires.
  • The “Exhaust smoke generator” is among the consumables of the Italian battleships, which will allow you to hide from the enemy without sacrificing speed.
  • A large number of guns with a relatively short firing range and not very good accuracy.
  • Secondary battery with good accuracy, but short range
  • Decent concealment and average maneuverability, quickly turning turrets and rather good armor.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. The final information will be published on our game’s website.


Le navi del nuovo ramo sono più efficaci nei combattimenti a medio raggio. Le caratteristiche principali delle corazzate italiane:

  • Come gli incrociatori italiani, al posto dei proiettili HE, le nuove navi sono armate con proiettili SAP. Infliggono danni elevati a bersagli e parti di navi deboli e moderatamente protetti, ma non provocano incendi.
  • Il “Generatore di fumo di scarico” è tra i consumabili delle corazzate italiane, che ti permetterà di nasconderti dal nemico senza rinunciare alla velocità.
  • Un gran numero di cannoni con un raggio di tiro relativamente breve e una precisione non molto buona.
  • Batteria secondaria di buona precisione, ma a corto raggio
  • Occultamento discreto e manovrabilità media, torrette che girano rapidamente e corazza piuttosto buona.

Tieni presente che tutte le informazioni nel blog di sviluppo sono preliminari e soggette a modifiche durante il test. Le informazioni finali verranno pubblicate sul sito web del nostro gioco.
